Storyline

Ten year old Jared Marshall's life crumbled down after his parents' divorce a year ago. Not only does his dad put his job first since, mother uproots him from Iowa by moving in with her ma so she can take a job in California. When Jared's class writes letters to US troops in Bosnia from the nearest base, kindhearted Sergeant First Class Vince Carerra, who grew up fatherless and got divorced because his wife wasn't faithful while he was on tour of duty, takes to the kid and starts a correspondence with 'fatherly' advice. Once his unit returns to Fort Sebastian, Vince calls on Jared's home, warmly welcomed. Vince becomes Jared's personal baseball coach and after some Cupid encouragement, his mother's boyfriend, but on an understanding not to commit because he's likely to be redeployed.

Goofs

When Dana goes to meet up with Vince and friends out in the desert, there is a woman in a yellow maternity top standing close to Vince. When they see Dana driving close, the woman is still there, but when Dana is getting out of her car the same woman is seen coming down out of the motor home. There is obviously not enough time for her to go into the motor home then come back out. See more »

Not much not to like here
24 November 2017 | by juneebuggySee all my reviews

I enjoyed this one quite a bit following Lori Loughlin as a divorcée who falls for a soldier home on leave who through a pen-pal friendship becomes a mentor to her 10 year old son. Despite their mutual attraction the pair are hesitant to start a romance in light of the soldiers upcoming deployment overseas.

This was just one of those nice romances where by the end you are really pulling for the couple, very sweet and slow burning. Johnny Messner as the soldier is easy on the eyes and plays a super nice guy. I also enjoyed Lori Loughlin as the mom and fun to see Stephanie Powers again as grandma.

Not much not to like here, everyone is likable and nothing terrible happens, no violence. Except for some repetitive dialogue and the lame military scenes at the barracks this was a sweet little movie. Contains a small amount of prayer and god talk as most of these Hallmarks do, nothing too in your face though.
